A feel-good beach read about finding love in the most unexpected places, from the USA Today bestselling author behind the beloved Hallmark movies Coming Home for Christmas and Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses.
Callie Weaver and her best friend Olivia Dixon have finally done it: put their life savings into the beach house they admired through childhood summers, on the dazzling white sand of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. They’re going to buff the salt from its windows, paint its sun-bleached sidings, and open it as a bed and breakfast.
Callie’s too busy to think about her love life, but when she catches the attention of local heartthrob Luke Sullivan, his blue eyes and easy smile make it hard to say no. He’s heir to his father’s real estate empire, and the papers say he’s just another playboy. But as they laugh in the ocean waves, Callie realizes there’s more to this man than money and good looks.
Just when true happiness seems within reach, Callie and Olivia find a diary full of secrets . . . secrets that stretch across the island and have the power to turn lives upside down. As Callie reads, she unravels a mystery that makes her heart drop through the floor.
Will Callie and Luke be pulled apart by the storm the diary unleashes, or can true love save them?

An average story set on a spectacular beach… This was a very average summer read. The story wasn’t particularly original and neither were the characters. Having said that, I LOVED that it was set on the Outer Banks, and that parts of it took place in Corolla. I LOVE that the wild horses are a part of the story and I LOVE that they mention the 4WD beach. One of my family’s favorite places on Earth.If you’re looking for a quick, easy, not particularly creative read…this one is for you!

Great read…until the end While the author handled character development with ease, painting word pictures in such detail that one could feel the humidity, the tension of a looming deadline and the amazing chemistry between Callie and Luke, in my opinion the ending was rushed and disjointed. It was as if her editor advised to “…cut it short, wrap it up, enough pages already!” As a result Paula, Poppy and the impulsive decisions to help them first, before accessing the hurricane damage to their own residence, did not…
